Flash has multiple documented security flaws that we know of and probably has more that we don't...when is Mint planning on removing flash and going to HTML5?

Need the engineers over at Mint to get rid of the old flash plugins and upgrade to HTML5 or something else that isn't full of zero-days!


Hi kcpilotguy,

Currently Mint does not have any plans to change the way the website currently displays information, and we're confident in the site's security; for those interested in learning how Mint protects your data, take a look here: https://www.mint.com/how-mint-works/security

We do appreciate your feedback and I'll tag this post as such so it has visibility to our developers, who look for these tags when seeking ways to improve Mint.

People come to Mint for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
